President's Message

President’s Message - January 2019

 

     Hope everyone had a blessed, enjoyable holiday season.  The Chapter’s last meeting in November featured Steve Chuilli and Lisa Moore from Capital Realty Advisors.  Steve and Lisa shared experiences and stories from the more than 30 years each of working with Home Owners Associations. Their talk was entertaining and informative.  It gave me an appreciation for the complex balance of clients, developers, government agencies, and home owners they work with on a daily basis.

 

     One of hardest things for many of us to do is to step outside of our comfort zone.  The beginning of a New Year is the perfect opportunity to try something new.  I came across this New Year’s quote from English author Neil Gaiman and it struck home.  “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” Seek new adventures and experiences.  There is no better time to start than now.

 

     Traditionally, the Palm Beach Chapter likes to begin the year with an update of the tax changes.  This year promises to be a game changer since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.  The details are in this newsletter.  Please join us for a 2-hour CPE meeting. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
